This is a sub-page of Proto:Nickelodeon Party Blast.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

The earliest known build of Nickelodeon Party Blast from October 8th, 2001, almost a year before the final retail build.

General Differences


The opening sequence uses primitive placeholder graphics.

Model Viewer

NPB Oct8 ModelViewer.png

On the main menu is a model viewer that is not in the final game, although it crashes while attempting to load a character. This was fixed by the next build.


NPB Oct8 Hub.png

A very unique "hub", in which you control a character and walk over to a desired Nicktoons destination. Picking any spot zooms the camera towards the player, only to bring you back to the main menu.

HUD Icons

In the final game, the characters in the HUD are represented by 3D heads, but in this prototype, they are choppy 2D renders of their heads.

Model Differences

Unused Graphics


data/scores/ contains sprites of characters that, with the exception of Angelica, do not appear in the final game at all. These characters are Chuckie from Rugrats, Dagget from The Angry Beavers, Adiboo, a character from a series of educational video games and not a Nickelodeon show, and Stimpy from The Ren & Stimpy Show.


data/screens/ contains leftover graphics mentioning Cut 'n' Run and Balloon Demo. They are probably from another project Data Design was working on around this time.
